AUGUSTA, GA (WTOC) - We are not the only ones dealing with severe weather in our state, the first Major of the golf season is set to get underway tomorrow.
Preparation was cut short again today as storms rolled through the Augusta area.
The Day started out gorgeous, with the sun shining through the Augusta Pines. The players were out on the range, but things soon changed as around 10:03 a.m. the first call of the day went out for the evacuation to start. That included the players, as we caught up with the defending champion on how this might affect play.
"They'll be playing softer, we played it Saturday-Sunday and they played it quite firm, we played it yesterday and it was softer, if it comes in like they say it's going to it's going to be softer still, with the wind that's in the forecast Thursday, Friday it could be an interesting week," said Danny Willett, Defending Masters Champion.
At 12:15 p.m. they began to let the patrons back in, with the idea that the par three would take place, but that lasted about an hour before the evacuation started again, and the course was closed for the day.
Be sure to join us tonight at 7:30 p.m. as we will take a closer look as we are on the Eve of the Masters.
